In a predawn raid, FBI agents searched the home of President Trump’s former campaign chairman Paul Manafort and seized documents and other materials late last month.

The July 26 raid came one day after Manafort met with staff for the Senate Intelligence Committee over the investigation into Russian interference in the 2016 presidential campaign, the Washington Post reports

FBI agents seized various records in what is turning out to be a widening probe into alleged collusion between Trump’s campaign and Russia.

Donna and Walter Williams were rattled awake by a loud noise at their door in Dallas.

“Boom, boom, boom!” Donna told WFAA.com. “My husband jumped up, and he said, ‘Somebody’s trying to break in!'” 

Their home had been broken into before, so they worried they were about to get robbed.

“We heard, ‘Open the door! Open the door now!'” Donna recalled.

FBI agents stormed into the home looking for a man that the Williams said they’ve never seen before.

“He showed me the picture, and I said, ‘Sir, I’ve never seen this man before in my life,'” Williams said. “It’s only me, my husband, and our little dog.”

The FBI eventually cleared the home.

Dallas FBI Special Agent in Charge Thomas M. Class, Sr., released a statement:

“The FBI attempted to execute a lawful, federal arrest warrant at [the home on] Blanton Street, Dallas, Texas, based upon probable cause to believe a wanted subject resided at that location. The FBI determined through a search of the home and the cooperation of the residents that the subject was not there, and agents departed the scene,”

The Williams family wants answers.

“I want to know why we were treated that way,” she said. “It was so scary. They didn’t ring the doorbell. They didn’t knock on the door. All they was trying to do was break in, and proceeded to treat us like criminals.”

Rodriguez said no one has answered her questions.

“They just left, they said they didn’t find the guy, the guy’s not here,” she said. “I almost had a panic attack, I was crying … I want to know why my house, and I’m hoping not just cause I’m Latino.”
